A great way to give a green gift is to make it a no waste, intangible offering that will no doubt provide immense joy to its recipient. My mom gives all of her grandchildren these types of gifts each year via dance lessons, music classes, and zoo memberships -- and the loveliest part is that these types of gifts last long after the initial wow factor of a physical present because they are activities that are frequently enjoyed.
Our zoo membership is priceless. You've read about many of our zoo adventures -- we practically use the zoo as our backyard, going there to play all the time. Olivia has also blossomed in her creative dance classes (shown with her cousin above), and we also adore our music classes!
So think outside the box (literally) this holiday season, and give the gift of enrichment to your loved ones!
